I needed to get out of the house and go for a short walk so I headed down to Fort Desoto to walk out on the fishing pier. It was a dark and windy late morning and was threating to rain so there wasn’t a lot of people out.
The laughing gulls were driving the pelicans crazy. They would wait until the pelican had a scoop full of fish in their beaks and then try and steal one from them. Or at least catch any smaller fish that fell out of the pelican’s mouth.

Far down on the beach, I could see a wedding taking place. Looks like it had just ended. Good thing since it was starting to drizzle.
Kiteboarders were having fun at the other end of the park facing the Skyway bridge. I don’t often see girls kiteboarding but the one in the bottom shot was keeping up with the boys.
The rain was starting to move in so I headed home.
Beautiful photos! Kite boarding really does look difficult. It must take tremendous upper body strength.
I have never seen kite boarders live but it looks very challenging. Looking and taking pics would be the limit of my participation. Beach wedding are fun but you have to mind the weather. Doesn’t look like the pelicans are laughing at the laughing gulls. Animals amaze me with the way they do things.
